Alphabet Fluency Charts, or RAN Boards, are a great alternative to flashcards because they are quick to duplicate and easy to manage. Also, each letter on the chart is duplicated multiple times in order to get children the repeated practice that they need. This has become Heidi’s preferred method over sending flashcards home, because it helps parents understand that children need to practice reading each letter more than one time! It is simple to practice exactly the same thing at school as at home by setting aside a few minutes at school to have the entire class read the chart aloud together.
Heidi does this and then simply chooses one child to focus on each day to listen while they read the letters. These alphabet fluency charts include a group of 4 letters at a time, with the letters in lowercase, capitals, and mixed, to help with each child focus on letter recognition between capitals and lower case letters. If these pages are kept in a special folder or left out on the students’ desks to find each morning first thing, fluency practice can become a simple matter of routine, habit, and a vital part of any language arts program!
Includes 31 pages: 26 letters grouped in the following order: A-D, E-H, I-L, M-P, Q-T, U-X, W-Z, A-Y, A-L, M-Z. All come in capital, lower case, and mixed fluency charts.
